Seminar: Accessibility of eLearning
Dec 4 - 17, 2006
Facilitated by Catherine Fichten and Jennison Asuncion
For the past three years, the Adaptech Research Network has been
investigating the accessibility of eLearning (e.g., PowerPoint in the
classroom, online tests) to Canadian college and university students
with visible and invisible disabilities. During this seminar, Jennison
and Catherine will describe the research and share some early findings
from their 409 research participants:
* college and university students with disabilities who have used eLearning
* professionals who provide disability-related accommodations on campus
* faculty who have taught a course where they used some form of
eLearning and had at least one student with a disability in that
course, and
* individuals who support/drive eLearning at their institution.

They will also be eager to hear about your experiences teaching using
eLearning with people with disabilities, your successes, and lessons
learned. Wherever possible, they will provide guidance and
suggestions, as well as facilitate the sharing of best practices among
